The Harold

with Brenna Dixon

The Harold is an improvised form developed by Del Close. It is a collage of scenes inspired by a single suggestion that is interwoven and connected. When The Harold was first conceived by The Committee, the structure was very loose. Over time, Del experimented with the form.

Brenna Dixon will teach a version of the Harold. 

The Harold allows students to learn how to shape a show, support the cast, follow their impulses, play in naturalism and non-naturalism, and more

This course consists of 5 workshops and 3 performances. 

Prerequisites: Impro Melbourne’s completion of our core courses (SpontaneityNarrative TechniqueCharacter Scene Work, and Formats and styles ), or equivalent improvisation and acting experience as determined by the Artistic Director.
